Dessert Pizza Recipe

We discovered this recipe recently and decided to try it. It was SUPER good and I thought some of you blog readers might enjoy it too. We don't have a round pizza pan so we just doubled it and used 2 pie plates, so it was more like Dessert Pie. :-)

Dessert Pizza
1/2 c. shortening 1c. chocolate chips
1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1t. baking powder
8 oz. cream cheese
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 t. vanilla
3/4 c. - 1 c. cool whip (OPTIONAL)
2 c. strawberries
some chocolate chips for the top (OPTIONAL)

Melt together shortening and chocolate chips. Cool. Stir in flour, 1/2c. sugar, baking powder and eggs. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Blend cream cheese, 3/4 c. sugar and vanilla until smooth. Spread over warm, but not hot crust, leaving 1" edge. Spread cool whip over the cream cheese layer. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Arrange strawberries on top. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the strawberries. ENJOY!!!
